Preserve our history
Museums are often called “memory institutions” because they collect documents and artifacts that enable each generation to experience their own history and the history of those who came before them.

About Your Donations
Where and how they are used
Your donations help the Louisville Historical Museum in many ways, including the support of:
- Programs and events
- Volunteer training
- Collection storage
- Oral history program
Every penny goes directly to the Museum!
Museum staff offer public lectures, history tours, school programs, art walks, and more. Their events bring hundreds of community members and visitors into the town and Museum to learn about the history of Louisville.
The Louisville Historical Museum has over 21,000 items in its collection. Funds may be used to undertake collection preservation or documentation.
FIRST FRIDAY ART WALKS
We all have a story to tell, and the Museum captures memories and stories of Louisville residents. Nearly 2,000 hours of oral histories are recorded on digital video and many are uploaded to their YouTube channel.
The Louisville Times from 1942-2007 was digitized to improve access and to preserve the fragile and deteriorating paper copies. With funding from the Louisville City Council, the Library worked with the Colorado State Library to add this collection to the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection (CHNC).
